Following are the "Terms and Conditions" governing application for, assignment to, and occupancy of the residence halls at Eastern Arizona College. The College reserves the right to deny campus housing, change room assignments, or remove a student from campus housing if it is felt to be in the best interest of the student and/or the College.
The 370 spaces in Campus Housing are at a premium especially during Fall Semester. There is typically a waiting list for the Traditional Halls in the Fall and, at times, both semesters for Residence Towers. Assignments are made in the following order of priority:
Returning residential students
Room Scholarship recipients in Traditional Halls only*
New students by date of receipt of application and $150 deposit
All part-time students on a space-available basis only
*All applications for Residence Towers are handled in chronological order. There are no spaces reserved for scholarship recipients.
Application and Assignment Procedure
Apply early. Your place on the Housing Assignment List is based on the date of receipt of the completed application and $150 deposit. Authorize credit card payment to Eastern Arizona College. You may also pay with a credit card by calling the Fiscal Office at 1-800-678-3808 Ext. 8223.
Within two weeks of mailing, you should receive a letter acknowledging receipt.
By mid-May (December for Spring Semester Housing), our returning students will have completed their reservation process and the Housing Office can determine the number of spaces available for new students.
In early June (mid-December for Spring Semester Housing), a Housing assignment letter along with a roommate preference questionnaire will be mailed to applicant. From that point on, assignment letters are mailed to new applicants to fill spaces as they may come available throughout the reservation period.
In early July, check-in informational packets will be sent to assigned applicants. If you do not want your room, you have until July 15 (December 15 for Spring Semester Housing) to request a refund of your $150 deposit.
Communication will be by U.S. Mail or e-mail, and occasionally by telephone. It is your responsibility to access these communications in a timely manner. The Housing Office is available throughout the year to verify receipt of applications/deposits and check on hall space availability.
Campus Housing Waiting List
Do not panic! Waiting lists are a normal part of campus housing. If you are placed on a waiting list, please call the Housing Office at 1-800-678-3808 Ext. 8605 to determine your current status. College students' plans change constantly and the waiting list can change from moment to moment. Residence hall spaces become available continually throughout the reservation process, but you may want to consider temporary off-campus housing options if you are on a waiting list, just in case space does not become available. You can contact the Housing Office to check your reservation status at any time.
Residence Towers Waiting List
If you are on a waiting list for Residence Towers, you may be assigned to a Traditional Hall (Mark Allen, Nellie Lee, Wesley Taylor) until a space becomes available in Residence Towers. When a space becomes available for you, you will be contacted by mail or by Residence Life Staff notifying you of your status and a time frame in which you are to move into Residence Towers.
If you do not move within the time frame established, or, opt to stay in a traditional hall, your name will be passed and the next person on the waiting list will be notified. The difference in room cost for Residence Towers must be paid before checking in. The Housing Office can assist you in determining that cost. If you prefer to wait off campus instead of being assigned to a traditional hall, please notify the Housing Office.
You will be charged for individual damages/false alarms and/or community damages/false alarms for which the responsible party remains unidentified. You can help reduce your costs by locking room and hall/community doors, limiting visitors, and identifying students causing damage.
The $150 deposit is your reservation deposit. If you do not move into campus housing, it will be refunded if:
You cancel on or before July 15 for Fall Semester or December 15 for Spring Semester; or
You are on a waiting list for campus housing and ask to be removed from the list. If you move into campus housing, the $150 converts to your damage deposit. It will be refunded minus any individual or community damages if you move out of campus housing after the end of the late registration period for that semester. The damage deposit carries over from semester-to-semester when you reserve your room as a returning student. You will be required to pay any damage costs incurred so that the deposit remains at $150 at all times. It takes 3-4 weeks after check-out to process a refund. You should not expect the money to be available at departure.
Students who cancel a residence hall reservation on or before the day the residence hall opens will be eligible for a full refund of room costs. Students who cancel or move out of a residence hall by the close of registration will be eligible for a 50 percent refund of room costs. There is no refund of housing costs after the end of registration.
- Student must check out with Head Resident to be eligible for refund and be released from responsibility for room.
The halls open a few days before classes begin. You will be notified of the date by mail. Your room and meals must be paid for on this date or you will lose your reservation. If you do not claim your room in person or by telephone by 5 p.m. of the first day of classes, your space will be reassigned.
All halls close for Thanksgiving weekend. The halls are also closed at the end of each semester and during Spring Break. They are not open during the summer. You are required to be out of the hall on-or before the date of each closure.
